Pilar Gomez Canedo worked for Discover in the 2014/2015 school year

Before I started working at Discover, I really didn’t know what to expect. Moving to a new place is always nerve-wrecking but the Directors (Assieh and Miguel Angel) made it incredibly easy for me! I was deeply touched by the heart-warming welcome and support I received from them.

My main objective was to learn as much as possible from my peers and students in an enjoyable working environment. Discover has not only met my expectations, but surpassed them! I've grown as a teacher AND as a person.  Assieh and Miguel Angel’s passion for education, and life itself, is contagious. They really go out of their way to help everyone achieve their personal and professional goals.

The Directors have a strong team ethic. They truly believe in growing as a group so we have weekly professional development workshops, peer observations, pot luck dinners… But one of my favorite team building moments was a scavenger hunt they organized for us. We were like headless chickens running around the whole town looking for clues!

So if you’re the kind of teacher who is NOT passionate about teaching, NOT open-minded, NOT enthusiastic, then this is not the place for you.
